And another noob question (cause I'm just full of them!) Folding my 4850 on my desktop takes 25% cpu power (or 1 core), whereas folding my 8600m on my laptop only takes ~2%. Is this because the nvidia core is more up to date or what? Oh, and right now (until I get my smp thing fixed on my desktop) I'm up to 5000 ppd according to FahMon
*Edit* switched the laptop back into mac and found mac is always in smp
so at 1600ppd it's a lot better than the ~800 I was getting on the graphics card in windows.
Yea, the current Nvidia drivers (180.60) drop CPU usage significantly for XP only. Vista has always been low due to the OS. Ati has not been able to drop it's XP CPU usage AFAIK. 1600 PPD is damn respectable for a laptop
. OK, back to SMP. Set up a password for the desktop in the control panel-user accounts. Then re-install "MPICH" SMP. Open the folder for MPICH and run the "Install.bat" file. Hit return on username (none needed) and enter your username password twice. Now create a shortcut and drag to the desktop. Right-click the shortcut and go to properties. You need to add to the end of the target filepath"- smp". Leave 1 space after the original target and 1 space after the hyphen. Apply those settings and now you are in SMP mode. Before we go further, did you download "Get & Set Affinity Changer"?
